Post pictures from your pony party.
We would love to see them!
How can we pay?
Only Cash or Money Orders are accepted on the day of the party or Clippity KLoPP Club. Checks can be used for the deposit if we receive them at least two weeks before the date of the party. We can also accept PayPal. Please ask about the details.
How soon do I need to mail in my deposit, service contract and terms of hire?
As soon as we have confirmed a time and date, I will email you a copy of the service contract and terms of hire. You should mail these back along with the deposit within 5 business days to hold your date.
Where are you located?
2280 Congress Lake Road Mogadore, OH 44260 Suffield Township in Portage County
I have a dog. Is that a problem?
Our pony has been around dogs. However, your dog may not be used to ponies. We suggest that you confine the dog so as not to alarm the children or pony with the barking or nipping of the pony’s heels. The miniature horse does not like dogs and may try to bite them!
How many ponies do I need?
One pony will allow 1-15 kids to take several rides during an hour. Some children may only ride once and be done and others will want to ride several times.
What happens if the weather is not cooperating?
If it is lightly raining, we will still do rides. If the party is at your location, you will need to provide a dry place for the kids who are waiting to ride. We will not ride if it is thundering and lightning.
How long does it take to start the rides once you arrive if we are having the party at our location?
It takes us a few minutes to get the pony unloaded and saddled. I then like to walk him around the area where we will be doing the rides so he can check everything out before we put children on his back. If we are late arriving for some reason (traffic, etc.), you will still get your full hour.
I don’t have a big backyard. Where will you do the rides?
We can use a small yard, sidewalk, driveway (no gravel), or quiet street. We have found that most children do not mind riding in small circles if that is all the space available. They are just thrilled to be riding a pony!
When should I reserve?
Once you pick out a day and a time, call or email. We require a deposit and reservation form to confirm everything. FYI- Weekday parties at our barn are usually easier to schedule and are more economically priced.
Are you insured?
Yes. We also hand lead the pony and require all riders to wear helmets which we provide and they are ASTM/SEI certified. Children will be riding one rider at a time and there are no “seat belts” on the saddles. We make every effort to ensure that you have a safe party.
What time will you arrive?
We strive to arrive 15 min. early to get the pony ready and the area set up.
We fertilize our grass. Is this a concern for the pony?
Yes. Please don’t schedule a party until at least a week after your yard has been fertilized. The pony will eat the grass and we don’t want him to get sick from the chemicals!
What do you provide when you bring the pony to our place for the party?
We will bring a pony, his tack (saddle, blanket, halter, lead rope), safety helmets, and a miniature horse for the children to brush.
Is there a weight restriction?
Yes, our pony can carry riders up to 75-100 lbs. (depending on their balance, etc.). This is for the health and well-being of the pony. Please keep this weight restriction in mind when inviting guests- this is also for the safety of the children. I need to be able to get them off the pony quickly in case of an emergency.
Is there an age restriction?
We will only give rides to children who are at least 2 years old. The reason for this is because younger children do not have the strength in their necks to keep from being bounced around. However, if you want to hold a smaller child on the pony for pictures, we can accommodate you. You are also welcome to walk along side your child if you think they need the support.
